In the past few years, we have promoted a number of fantastic events at U Penn's Wharton School. This year is no exception: On February 17th, Wharton is hosting their 2012 Wharton Restructuring and Turnaround Conference. The title of this year's conference is particularly relevant: "The Great Deleveraging - Dealing with Debt on a Global Scale." Panelists include players from all facets of the distressed debt and restructuring world; firms speaking include: PIMCO, Bayside, FTI, DB, Monarch, Centerview, Alix, Alvarez, all the top bankruptcy law firms, and many others. One panelist I am particularly interested in hearing from is the Honorable Kevin Gross: Chief Judge of the US Bankruptcy Court of Delaware, who has been a fixture in the distressed debt world presiding over cases like Nortel, Newpage, and the LA Dodgers just to name a few. The event will also feature a keynote from Marc Lasry, Co-Founder and CEO of Avenue Capital, which should be fantastic.
